Wow, we’ve had a busy year so far! If you are working on rows around our square blocks, remember this months’ row is simply a 2.5 inch strip all the way around. It should measure about 28.5 inches when finished. I’m going to give you a hint for next months row, http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2011/03/those-bonus-triangles.html. Bonnie hunter gives a great tutorial on using those pesky bonus triangles that you cut off of flying geese, etc. Its great information.
Our meeting is scheduled for April 10 at Holy Trinity and I’m sure that Kerry has a fabulous program lined up for us. Speaker for this month is Cathy Messner who will share “Working with a Long Arm Quilter” Don’t forget to bring your finished squares and if you are working on the Quilter’s Newsletter Block of the Month, Ooh, Rah, it should be coming out on April 2nd or thereabouts.
Karen Fisher and Linda Frick have put together a great workshop for us and I hope you can attend. Sign up will be at the meeting and cost is $5 for lunch only. You will need to pay when you sign up so we can have a head count for ordering food. What a deal! See you soon!
